Very nice hotel and centrally located. Handy to the river and to the Magnificent Mile (very pricey shopping). We were her for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the stay It is also close to a "Hop On and Hop Off" ride which we recommend.
Some of the bonus items are:
-free drinks and light snacks from 5:30 to 7:30 every evening. I never saw anyone abuse the alcohol and get intoxicated in spite of 2 hours of open bar
-Great breakfast - you could order it cooked to order or choose from a full buffet with eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes as well as cereals and limited selection of fruits. This s a great value as in other hotels for this I would expect to pay $18 to $24.
There are some items to improve on:
-INTERNET-usually it is $15 per day but in June, for a Promo it was free. However, you could only access it from one room of the suite and every time you signed off you had to go through the complete log-on process again
-DRINKING GLASSES. Looking at the maids carts there are no fresh, clean glasses on it so that means the maid washes your used glasses by hand in your sink, I assume. You may want to rinse a 2nd time before using them.
-DRAPES -they did not seem to fit adequately and you were sure of waking up early when the sun rose as the room filled with light. Take a sleep mask.
The Concierge, Doris Vann-Evans, was able to give us directions and answer all of our questions. She supplied tickets on the spot with reservations. The boat tour she booked us on was good but for photographers there are white bars above the seats to support a tarp in case of rain. Bars always got in the way for pictures.
All of the staff at street level were excellent at getting cabs, storing luggage, etc. I wish I had gotten the name of the young reddish hair bellman as he was excellent.
Jamie Murray, in the dining services was very attentive to our needs and stopped to talk to us for feedback on the dining services.
We Will stay here again!!
